Pakistan - China - Kyrgyzstan April/May 2014 Looking for fellow travelers for China

Hi all,

My partner and I have been in the process of researching and planing our overland route from India - London - Cape town.

We are Shipping our 4x4 (Land Cruiser troop carrier) from Sydney to Chennai, India, and are planning to be in Nepal for my brothers wedding in Feb 2014.

We would then like to proceed overland to London. From India there are not many viable overland routes that are particularly trouble free. Rather than Afghanistan or Iran we plan on crossing Via the Karakoram Highway from Pakistan into China.

Anyone familiar with overland travel in China knows that it can be quite expensive in smaller numbers.

The fastest way to pass through China and into the stans, Kyrgyzstan, is via the routes as stated by two of the tour companies that have quoted us -

NAVO -

Day1.Khunjerab-Tashkurgan Karakuli-Lake

Day2.Karakuli Lake-Kashgar

Day3.Kashgar(stay for getting necessary driving license and so on)

Day4.Kashgar-Tourgat

Day5.Tourgat exit China


Or from China overland


Day01.Drive into China via Turgart Pass Khunjereb Pass. Saty in Tashkorgan.then drive to Kashgar Hotel: Crown Inn

Day02. Tashkorgan - Karakuri Lake- kashgar (290km) Hotel:Seman Hotel

Day03. Kashgar ((paperwork at traffic police station & sightseeing)
Hotel:Seman Hotel

Day04.Kashgar– Turgart Pass where drive into Kyrgyzstan.(150km)


I have also been in contact with Xin Jiang & Tibet Expeditions but have not received a reply.

Regardless of the time frame both companies have quoted around $3000 USD (or AUD about the same at the moment) for the one vehicle and two people.

We are planning on making the crossing as soon as we can weather permitting. Both companies have recommended late April or May.

Some costs can be shared by fellow travelers which is why we have posted this thread.

We have a couple from Oz who have showed some interest in tagging along, but the more the merrier!!

Please contact or PM me if anyone out there is interested in joining us or has a similar plan.

Thanks

Jerome.

If there are any other tour companies in China that I haven't mentioned, please let me know and I will inquire ASAP.
